Well, it’s taken some time but with the current racial climate and a lawsuit pending from their own minority employees charging Planned Parenthood with systemic racism and bigotry, the NYC Chapter of Planned Parenthood has finally confessed what we have known for decades – Margaret Sanger was a racist. It should not have been so hard to come to that conclusion with documented collaboration with Adolf Hitlers Third Reich and a letter of commendation from the Furor himself thanking her for her tutelage. Yes, I said tutelage. Margaret Sanger tutored the most renowned racist regime known to modern man. Confession should have come easy and long ago.
Karen Seltzer, the chair of New York said in a statement, “The removal of Margaret Sanger’s name from our building is both a necessary and overdue step to reckon with our legacy and acknowledge Planned Parenthood’s contributions to historical reproductive harm within communities of color,” said Karen Seltzer, Board Chair at PPGNY. “Margaret Sanger’s concerns and advocacy for reproductive health have been clearly documented, but so too has her racist legacy. There is overwhelming evidence for Sanger’s deep belief in eugenic ideology, which runs completely counter to our values at PPGNY. Removing her name is an important step toward representing who we are as an organization and who we serve.”
It was just a few years ago they were giving out the Margaret Sanger award and now they say she is completely counter to our values at Planned Parenthood??? Planned Parenthood has never stopped being Planned Parenthood since its inception. The Birth Control League changed its name to Planned Parenthood in 1945 when the heat was on globally concerning eugenics due to the exposure of the horrific deeds of the Third Reich. Planned Parenthood never stopped practicing the targeting of African Americans and minorities for sterilization and abortion. As Margaret Sanger stated, “Colored People are human weeds and they need to be exterminated” The deliberate placement of their clinics in African American neighborhoods has never ceased since the first one in Brooklyn in 1916. The targeting of minorities was undeniable, but they managed to continue unscathed because of dishonest media and white elitist influence over Black leadership.
